When you sign up to AxCrypt 2 you’re required to enter your email address when you start the program. You then have to enter a verification code which is sent by email. Once you’ve done this you decide upon a password and that’s that. There’s a a free version of AxCrypt 2 and a paid version.
AxCrypt 1.7 is a different piece of software which works differently. No sign-up was required and the software was free.
If your files are encrypted with AxCrypt 1.7 then they’ll continue to be permanently accessible.
If your files are encryption with AxCrypt 2 (unlikely because you’re saying you didn’t enter the verification code) then your AxCrypt 2 ID will be deleted. Any files can still be decrypted providing you don’t forget your password.
Capital letters indicate you’re shouting and it makes it difficult to understand your question.
